WRX spoiler to STI spoiler

Guys and girls. When I first bought my WRX I was more than happy with the standard rear spoiler (the flat one). Now I see more pictures of your cars and also other cars local to me that have the higher (STI) style spoiler.

Could I ask your opinions on whether I should buy one to replace my standard spoiler.

Also can anyone recommend a u.k. supplier if I do buy one. My car is a 53 plate WRX in sliver.

Re: WRX spoiler to STI spoiler

Cheers for the above guys. I had seen these a couple of days ago. Not yet sure about them as not seen any on the actual cars yet.

What do you think about the original STI spoiler for my year of car and who sells good quality ones.

Thanks for your help so far.

Re: WRX spoiler to STI spoiler

the original sti spoiler will be expensive and will require additional holes.

the wrx spoiler is held on by 4 bolts the genuine sti spoiler is held on by 12! Look at aftermarket copies, will only equire 4 fixings and will be lighter on the pocket.

Cheers for that jd. I didn't know there was 12 on the sti spoiler. As you've advised - I will look around for an after market copy.

Thanks for all your help.
